Nereus Fellow at UBC Muhammed Oyinlola will attend the ClimEco5 summer school organized by the Integrated Marine Biogeochemistry and Ecosystem Research project, titled ‘Towards more resilient oceans: Predicting and projecting future changes in the ocean and their impacts on human societies’, from August 10 to 17, in Natal, Brazil.
“ClimEco5 will focus on ways to model environmental and anthropogenic problems that beset the world’s oceans and related ecosystem services. Aspects of climate and environmental change will be outlined and linked to important social, economic, and policy issues with the goal of maintaining sustainable and productive oceans. Lectures will examine a range of modelling approaches (including spatial modelling), monitoring, data analysis, indicators, and management advice and communication from a theoretical perspective as well as using case studies from coastal and upwelling systems around the world. Participants will apply the concepts discussed in the lectures during “hands-on” sessions where a range of models, indicators, and analytical methods will be used.”
